Homecoming Court nominees who don’t walk away with the winning crown can still snag a consolation prize at Burger King thanks to the chain’s $10 Homecoming Meal for two. According to the press release, restaurants in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and Oklahoma City will be offering special crowns to patrons who order the Homecoming Meal. Burger King has a long history of redesigning its iconic crowns to celebrate different events and promote current menu offerings, like the pop art-inspired birthday crown offered last year on Burger King’s 68th birthday. This year’s HoCo-themed crowns are decorated with sparkling details and “Homecoming” written in bold lettering.
If you aren’t located in one of the major cities that will be supplied with the Burger King Homecoming crowns, you might still be able to snag a classic crown from the Whopper-purveyor to wear while you dance the night away. Most restaurant locations regularly keep a stash of their recognizable accessory to give out to kids ordering King Jr. meals, but customers of all ages can ask for a free Burger King crown of their very own … although, we aren’t sure if a paper crown will make up for the fact that you brought your date to a fast food joint.
